About this Album
As the title suggests, this album should be played LOUD. Even better, with eyes closed. But its impact can be felt any way you slice it. This set of Todd Horton originals, performed by the Philly based band ROMP, is brimming over with funkiness. The all-star group, comprised of some of Philly's most out-of-the-box players, interprets Horton's music with maturity and the performances are fresh and inspired.
Play It Loud was recorded at Vic Stevens' own Giant Steps Recording, a state-of-the-art studio located near Philadelphia. The co-production was a true collaboration between Horton and Stevens, but, like all great bands, everyone had creative input. That's part of what makes this album inspired and tight. ROMP is one of only a few electric jazz groups today with a truly original sound and "fire up underneath it".
